Y'all I did some calling around for RV's. Ran into a little problem. They are all booked up for the end of February and don't have availability until March. We have a little thing called Rodeo going on and the end of Feb is when all the trail rides occur. Those lazy ass "cowboys" ride on the horses during the day and sleep etc in those fancy RV's. So I guess RV's are the covered wagons of the 2000's.
So they are available after the first of March and I found a good place with good rates. The 27 foot ones run $700-$750 a week. and they have their prices on the web page. The weekly rentals come with 700 free miles and then it is .25/mile after. M&D's is around 1050 one way so, if you say 2200 miles - 700 = 1500 X 0.25 = $375.00 for the extra miles.
The gas is of course on your own.
The big issue is that they say there is not any RV's that will accommodate a wheel chair through the door. So Mom would have be gotten into the RV someway other than in a wheelchair. That may be a deal breaker right there. You could maybe use a back board (what they carry patients on in ambulances and on TV). You would secure the patient, pick up the back board and carry them to the bed.
I think Anna and I would have to look at them to see if there are any that would work for us.
Hope y'all are having a good day.
